Bubba continues to be the man

Earlier this week we brought you an article by ESPN.com’s Rick Reilly about the correlation between athletes’ generosity and their character. Right on cue, Masters Champion and seemingly great guy, Bubba Watson showed up at the Ping Golf headquarters and bought all 900 employees lunch. How is this quote from Bubba, as an endorsement of his character?: “These people, they’re helping me. They’re the guys behind the scenes, making sure I have the right equipment, working hard,” Bubba said. “I owe a lot to them, and so this is just a simple way of giving thanks.” Courtesy Golf Digest.
